WH: No change in immigrant
surge strategy ´at this point´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

The White House is not planning to reassess its strategy for handling thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming across the border amid mass protests. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he had not spoken to President Obama about protests in California that blocked buses full of immigrant detainees from reaching a processing station. But Earnest said there was no expectation of changing strategies to deal with the flood of minors "at this point.” "At this point, what we´re focused on is making sure that we can ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need," Earnest said. On Tuesday, more

They should all be jailed for this outright criminal behavior. The military should be sent down to the border immediately and shut it down!! Now!!

There have been so many anti-American actions committed by this w.h. already, it´s difficult to be sure which one is worse. This latest invasion of illegals being promoted by the illegal-in-chief, has been one of the most disgraceful episodes in this country´s great history. IMHO, this will not end well.

"Why change the strategy? Everything is working exactly as planned. We create chaos, and then blame Republicans, and the media and other non-thinking people agree. Ain´t life great!"

The Obama base is a coalition of special interest groups cobbled together to form a majority. As long as each group gets their wish list put into law, they will all hang together, regardless of the negative impact of their individual desires.

Until some portion of this majority becomes disillusioned and turns on the others, I don´t see a way to stop this madness.

In his dealings with illegal aliens Obama has become the ultimate film-flam man. When he proclaims that the borderline is secure your eyes tell you that it is not secure. When he tells you that he will send most illegal aliens back to their home countries your eyes tell you that he is actually allowing most illegal aliens to stay and await amnesty. The illegal alien situation will get much worse as long as the liberal Democrats think they have a chance to flip the vast majority of the growing illegal alien population group into socialist oriented Democrat voters by way of amnesty and a path to citizenship.

"Strategy"? The strategy is to avoid our immigration laws and even to encourage all comers to just come here and get pampered.

Our open borders allow terrorists from Middle Eastern countries here as well. They can simply camouflage themselves among the Central Americans. What is to stop them?

Our POTUS, the DOJ and the Democrat Party are complicit and frankly, promoting, the illegal influx of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to make the rest of us pay for it. When we can no longer do so, the system collapses and Cloward-Piven is then the "law" of the land.

Paraphrasing Henry II of England, "Will no one rid me of this meddlesome political Party?"

Everything is going as planned. Did the voters not read or listen to what obama´s plans were for the USA? He TOLD us he did not like our country being the leading superpower. He TOLD us he was going to destroy our economy. He TOLD us what he was going to do and the majority of people voted for him and, after his very successful handling of the decline of our economy, they re-elected him.

As we approach July 4th, all I can think about is that my beloved country is under attack by its President and his administration. There will be parades and celebrations all across this great country, but we have little to celebrate this year because our country is in the midst of being torn apart by an anti-American Alinsky loving fool. As we stand and clap and cheer, in reality we are in grave danger of losing the last best hope on this planet because we can´t imagine that could ever happen. Maybe its time to stand on the parade route with hand made signs that say, #Bring back our country.

This onslaught is the product of criminal devious minds like Obama´s and Holder´s. It is an example of what I have maintained. Obama didn´t study law to practice it. He studied law to learn how to circumvent it.

Why are the immigrants coming from Central America? Because the law states we have to accept them as long as their countries of origin are not contiguous to the United States. It´s a loophole that a shyster like Obama would abuse.

What is his diabolical plan? Only time will tell.

Mexico has a new government under the leftist PRI. Previously it was impossible for Nicaraguans or Hondurans to cross Mexico to reach US. Now even unaccompanied children can do it.

Remember folks that once here these teenage alien invaders will be minorities with preferential affirmative action admissions and scholarships at our colleges. They will replace your own children in these slots.

We owe them nothing and should provide them nothing but a bus ride back to the border and a swift kick in the butt to get them started on their way back home.

This is defined as an "immigration" issue?...Forget the 11,000,000 figure we have been force-fed the leftist goobermint bureaucrats, elected officials and their affiliated "bought and paid for" whores in the Democrat controlled Dark Side MSM all these years...Today, there are, most likely, over 11,000,000 illegal aliens in just the combined States of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. The real figure nationwide, would be closer to 30,000,000 to 60,000,00 illegal aliens. Certainly this number can be classified as a horrific "foreign invasion" and "occupation" of American soil by any standard of measurement.

So what is the solution? First and foremost, the undocumented Sunni Muslim rabble-rouser in The White House, Lord Obama, needs to be immediately impeached, tried for "high crimes and misdemeanors," incarcerated and then deported back to Jakarta, Indonesia. Concurrently, the high ranking associated gangsters and traitors in his administration, need to be removed from office, arrested, tried in federal courts and subjected to extended sentences in maximum security federal lockup facilities.

Next, the rest of the "yardbirds" left in high goobermint positions in Washington, D.C., from both political parties, would need to take immediate drastic actions---starting by first enforcing the federal laws already on the books. If this is not done, America´s magnificent Constitutional Republic will soon become just another run-of-the-mill "banana republic" and part of the "ash heap" of world history.

Have a nice day.

The only reasonable form of immigration reform is NO immigration.

The legislature should immediately enact a no immigration statute for say five years, and like all other sovereign nations, like Canada, all of Europe and Asia, only permit immigrants who have a unique skill that US citizens do not possess.

In addition, any one or company who hires an illegal alien should be severelly punished with a huge fine and say around 10 years in a federal prison.

To arms! To arms! The invasion is coming!!

Fellow LDotters --- if you do nothing else this weekend you MUST look up the "Cloward-Piven Strategy". I don´t care if you Google it, check Wikipedia, use Safari, Opera, Bing, Firefox, Dogpile or Yahoo. I don´t care if you go to the library and look it up manually in an old Encyclopedia Britannica but everyone must become aware that this 1960´s strategy is just what Obama is trying to do! Overload our system until it collapses.

Read the strategy developed by this nut-job married couple of socialist professors and the scales will fall from your eyes and you will see clearly that Obama is trying to create a welfare state --- run by him! It is 10 minutes of reading that will leave you shaking for our country & its future. You won´t regret looking it up!

While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, according to a source in attendance. Maverick PAC has described itself

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state.

While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed. The French famously said “non” in 2003 when President Bush

(Video)Friday during the White House press briefing, National Security Advisor Susan Rice abruptly left in the middle of a question after confusing reporters with her announcement President Barack Obama was going ahead with air strikes in Syria. When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room
